Winners will be announced on June 22, 2014 

Each submission will be examined for technical quality. All submitted themes must be validated successfully against current web standards. Participants should ensure their applications are compatible across all major web browsers, e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer. Technical correctness is essential. 

We all know a well-designed web application must adapt to a wide variety of screen sizes and user interfaces. So Usability and responsiveness is a highly valued criteria, as is Aesthetic appeal. The technical difficulty of how the theme was conceptualized and the design/development process will also be evaluated, with extra points being awarded to submissions that demonstrate use of tools and frameworks, accessibility and reusability for themes that are compatible with at least 2 other packaged applications.
